Computer-Aided Design, Manufacturing, and Modeling
I was sick at home sleeping during the all morning and when I awake, I told myself, I could maybe try to follow the session.
Indeed, 2 weeks ago I have seen Bas Withagen uing Ekiga and to be able
to see and hear exacly the same we could see on the screen of the Waag
I send him an email and he is confirming me it is possible and after 2
emails from him, I was able to follow the session as if I was in the
To make it works, I did open Ekiga and did use the address:
and then use the dialpad, push 1 and then #
I am in the conference call regarding the session!!!
Good!!! It works!!!
It is a little bit to long for me, everyone is explaining in a few
words... sometimes with more than a few words ;-) but it is normal
everyone look very interesting regarding what they want to do. My turn,
I do explain who am I and what I want to do. It was quick and short as I understood it should be.
This link is the one where I can find out which tool should or could I use:

Today, I have tried to use a 3D designer tool. Blender as it was installed on my computer. I start to make some reseach on internet to look for tutorials and information I can find in French or in English.
I found out a tutorial but I run the
version 2.49 on my computer and most of tutorials are for the version
2.5 which is not matching to the interface I can see on my desktop when
I start it.
So, no choice I will apply the last
version I do find on the web page of CG Cookie
(http://cgcookie.com/blender/get-started-with-blender/), an educational
hub site on which there are also video tutorials and writing documents
I go to follow each steps.dowloading and installation. Done it was easy.
Interface and navigation, it looks "ok" even if I need to stay
concentrated. Now, modeling...well, yes, it is working but I need
practice the guy who did this video is going quicklier, more and
more... I will need to take time and to review this video several
I need to be concentrated to do learn to use correctly this tool... It is not easy...
I've never used that type of tool, even if I've heard to talk about
them but it is taking a lot of time for me... When you see on the web
sites, pictures created by Blender are great but I need a lot of
practice and it is really time consuming. On my side, as I won't follow
all the lessons, I will get time to focus a little more on it later, I hope

These pictures are not yet finished. I will need to finish the
textures of the materials and then to export them with the "render"
command which should allow me to export the picture in ".jpeg" format
